The Curse of Rick Astley has already taken its hold over Jose Reyes' legs.

They actually played the song at Shea Stadium yesterday, for those interested.

How was the crowd reaction? Thrilled, I would assume. B-)

Hah, in 100 years they'll be praising that song, when the Mets are without a W.S. championship and the Curse of Rick Astley is alive and well.

I had to watch the YouTube video to refresh my memory. As soon as I saw it, I remembered him and that video. This was a pretty good song back then. I remember liking it as a kid. Probably wouldn't have admitted it back then. I would be caught admitting to much back then music-wise other than Ozzy rocks and AC/DC rules. Image

Also, The Curse of Rick Astley is dumb. Can't happen. The song makes it perfectly clear that there are certain things Rick Astley would never do: give you up, let you down, run and around and desert you, make you cry, say goodbye, tell a lie, hurt you. I'm pretty sure a curse falls under several of those categories. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

True, but you guys shunned Rick. There's no telling what that dude is capable of now.

Playing his hit single on Opening Day is not shunning Mr. Astley. Sir Astley. The Astley.
